    When the posters got back from the Bash at Golden Nugget you could tell just from the photos posted that everyone looked happy. I really didn't think the Golden Nugget would put on a great show for SBR... but they did. It's good to see everyone happy like that! I don't know if a place in Costa Rica could make us that happy... but if they can... I guess I'm in. I've never been out of the country in my life... (except for Canada). Just hoping the juice is worth the squeeze.

John I'm sure your people would love to get off the island but I'm sure plenty of people would love to come to you.
    The staff started working on it today.

    I guarantee you if you ask those who went to all of them that the Costa Rica Bash will be rated the best. It was literally a rolling party with chartered buses and two different hotels, one very crazy night in the city and one on the beach. The flight is no longer to CR than LV if you live east of El Paso. The only minor item is getting a passport. I think they run about $65 and kill a couple of hours. Course they are good for 10 years.

    Been to bashes in both LV and CR. Costa Rica the best by far....and its not even close.

    Only downside I saw while in CR was when Loshak made the entire bus wait while he ran into some place called Puchos to "get something plugged", so he said. Whatever the fukk that meant???

    All I know is 45 mins later the weirdo came back completely disheveled sucking on a cough drop.

    yes. There will be a point bidding war to room with you. Im the favorite currently and I plan and getting you so loaded you pass out. Then I will take the most expensive rug you bring, glue it to your ass and nail it like it was a 70s porn star bush.

    If you won't pass out I guess I will be forced to knock you out. Can't wait
